Knives are one of the things that I like to collect, I have many. The knife that I carry and use daily is the Kershaw 1660 CKT. When I have to “dress up” I carry the little brother to it the model 1600, both a Ken Onion design. The Kai steel blades hold a nice edge and aren’t to hard to resharpen. I now prefer pocket knives that have a pocket clip making it easier to access and saving on making holes in the bottom of my pockets.

I also like to keep my Blackie Collins designed SOG paratool close by . A friend who is a gun & knife dealer has advised me that the value of the old ones made before CNC machines has more than tripled. He told me to put the old one in the safe and buy a new one.

Another shop favorite has been my Shrade Sharpfinger, the big one. Good steel, holds an edge, easy to maintain and I like the thickness of the blade where I put my thumb.

Papa @ papswoodworking. No, there’s nothing wrong with carrying a knife or two or three.
